Eastern Province Minister, Makebi Zulu says he will engage the Ministry of Infrastructure, over the need to repair some crossing points, which have been washed away.
The bridges have been washed away by the heavy rains being experienced in the province.
Mr. Zulu says the bridges will be attended to by the Zambia National Service -ZNS- and Road Development Agency -RDA.
Mr Zulu was speaking in an interview with journalists at his office in Chipata.
Meanwhile, Mr Zulu has implored the local authorities to be carrying out routine checks on the bridges, and also ensure that members of the public desist from vandalising the structures.
